Shropdoc announces Dr Ian Russell, of Welshpool Medical Practice, as the 2012 winner of the Dr Steve Hugh Award for Excellence in Primary Care.
Shropdoc is proud to announce that the 2011 Dr Steve Hugh Award for Quality in Primary Care has been presented to Sister Val Proctor and her team at the Benign Prostate Symptom Assessment Clinic in Ludlow. Prostate health is an increasing problem in the ageing male population and whilst prostate cancer awareness is growing there are a significant number of older men whose quality of life is affected by non-malignant prostate problems too.
The annual Shropdoc “Steve Hugh” award for 2010 has been awarded to Jessie Bergstrom-Mann and the district nursing team for the setting up and running of the Llandrindod Wells Leg Club.
Shropshire Doctors Cooperative (Shropdoc) used the occasion of their Annual General Meeting to present the prestigious Steve Hugh Award for outstanding clinical work in Primary Care to nurse Sue Davies.
"I am a Hospice @ Home nurse, and would like to pass thanks to the visiting Dr for his time, patience and for being so thorough. The medication administered helped and the patient is now settled and comfortable."
"I would like to thank the Call handler who took our call last night - she was very helpful in finding pharmacy information at an awkward time and for people that don't know the area well."
"I phoned Shropdoc Tuesday morning at 3am and the Doctor on call arranged an appointment for me at the local hospital - thank you Shropdoc for your help."
"I just wanted to message as yet again tonight my daughter has received a great and prompt service by shropdoc. Such friendly staff and nothing is ever too much trouble - my children have had to attend a couple of times over the last few weeks and we’re very grateful! Too many people are soon to make a complaint but don't take the time to compliment where it's due - wonderful service!"
"As an asthmatic with a child under one, I have used the service on a number of occasions and have always found the call handlers and medical staff to be friendly, reassuring and very thorough. A real lifeline. Friends and family living in other counties are very jealous that we have access to such an excellent service."
